Detroit Area Steelheaders “Special Friends Day” Outing
June 6, 2020
Toledo Beach Marina
11840 Toledo Beach Rd. LaSalle, MI. 48145

Each year our Detroit Area Steelheaders organization hosts a group of “Special Friends” for a day of fun and fishing. What is this group of special friends? It’s a group of people young and not so young who face a physical or emotional challenge. They are men and women, children and adults who come together one day each year to spend a day with us having fun. “Special Friends Day” is a social outing with their friends where they spend the morning on Lake Erie catching fish. After fishing, lunch is provided under the big tent where our “Special Friends” socialize and show off their ‘days catch’. The remainder of the event is filled with pictures, prizes, and fun.

DAS sponsors this event as a way to give back to our community but its success comes from the experience of our members. Each person who helps out knows they are part of a worthwhile cause and the event is sustained because our members keep coming back. Special mention also goes out to Toledo Beach Marina. They donate the use of the marina each year and provide free launch and boat slips to help make this event a success.

This event has continued for over 30 years now and your help is needed to keep it going. The DAS needs captains, boats, ground crew helpers, and donations. If you can help in any way please call DAS “Special Friends” chair Dan Chisholm 586-530-9171.
